Anyone else getting spamed by a translation service with AikiWeb in the subject? Like the guy is harvesting email addresses from AikiWeb posts?

Hi Greg,

I can't say I've received such. And, of course, AikiWeb would never share member information to anyone.

If you'd like, you can send me the e-mail (with complete headers (eg the Received: lines)) and I can take a look...

No. Haven't received anything like that.

My public email is in my signature line. Deliberately. From there, the rules run and anything with aikiweb in address, subject or body is moved into the "Pay Attention". So, by putting AikiWeb in it, he's defeating my, admittedly, crude spam guard.

I have now put in a rule that runs first that throws any emails from him into the bit bucket.
